A circumstance work, originally written to celebrate the bicentenary of the french revolution in 1789, which compares the momentum of the people who is released from the yoke to a genie that comes out of his lamp, hence the title "Djinn".
But far beyond, it is in fact a masterful work that Xavier le Masne wrote, celebrating freedom, equality and fraternity, thanks to the words of Jean Mazeaufroid whose poem is tremendously embedded in music.
The work is for mixed choir and orchestra (hire material), with possibility of different nomenclatures.
Note: the score is handwritten, it includes spoken parts, clusters, tanks, mixing tessitures or letting each individual voice emit sounds that create a sculptural acoustic bunch, alternating with more traditional singing parts with four voices.
Instrumentation, available on request (hire material):
violins 1, violins 2, violas 1, violas 2, cellos 1, cellos 2, trumpets 1, trumpets 2, horns 1, horns 2, trombone, tuba, percussion 1, percussion 2.
A work to rediscover that mostly resonate today.
